An "avoidable" fire that started on a stove damaged a Kearns home Tuesday afternoon, displacing a family of six.
The fire burned a home at 3990 W. Zodiac Drive (6020 South), according to Unified Fire Capt. Fitzgerald Petersen. Crews got word of the blaze at 2:09 p.m., and when they arrived found smoke and flames coming out of the home's second story.
Petersen said the firefighters knocked the flames down within five minutes. A 14-year-old boy and a police officer both suffered from smoke inhalation. Petersen said the boy had rushed back into the home in an attempt to save a pet.
